AMPSO-OADFM, incorporating the engine of Anasift's analog optimization tool AMPSO, is targeting at the transistor-level optimization of analog design for manufacturability for all kinds of analog building circuits including opamps, analog buffers, comparators, voltage regulators, line drivers/receivers, trans-impedance amplifiers, and other analog building blocks, or the analog characteristics of small digital cells.
AMPSO-OADFM is the best of the kind analog optimization tool that aims to provide analog design optimization with better manufacturability and yield for delicate, high-performance analog building circuits. AMPSO-OADFM can optimize a high-performance analog amplifier used in an 8 bits 205MHz sample per second ADC in less than one day in one regular Intel CPU yet requiring no SPICE license.
"With AMPSO analog optimization engine embedded inside, AMPSO-OADFM can optimize analog circuits to maintain high analog performances, and also take care of all possible characteristic fluctuations due to the uncertainty or variation of manufacture process. DFM attracts much attention recently in the industry. Current DFM topics are mostly focused on the digital ICs only. However the facts that more than 70% of SOC designs are mixed-signal, and analog circuits are more sensitive to process variation and prone to produce defects of mixed-signal IC functions make people realize that the key problem in DFM of mixed-signal SOC shall be more in the analog part than in digital. We are thrilled to release AMPSO-OADFM that provides the best industrial solution to the optimization of analog design for manufacturability as well as the optimization of analog circuit performances including speed, power consumption, die size, linearity, etc." said Dr. J.J. Hsu, founder and President of Anasift.
AMPSO-OADFM takes a SPICE netlist or AMPSO optimization file as input. It accepts typical SPICE model files. It can optimize analog designs to meet design specifications across statistical variations of manufacture process corners to improve manufacturability and to insure high yield and accurate silicon implementation. AMPSO-OADFM is designed to fit into existing Cadence (NYSE:CDN) Mentor Graphics (NASDAQ:MENT) and Synopsys (NASDAQ:SNPS) analog design flows.
Anasift Technology, a privately held innovative company located in Silicon Valley, is developing electronic design automation (EDA) software for analog integrated circuit (IC) design. Anasift's mission is to develop analog EDA optimization tools that remove the high performance analog IC design productivity bottleneck and assure accurate and high yield silicon implementation through the optimization of analog design for manufacturability.
